How should I fill out the preference form for the IBPS PO 2018 to get a posting in an urban city?
When you get selected as bank officer of psb you will have to serve across the country. Banks exist not just in urban areas but also in semi urban and rural areas also. Imagine every employee in a bank got posting in urban areas as their wish as a result bank have to shut down all rural and semi urban branches as there is no people to serve. People in other areas deprived of banking service. This makes no sense. Being an officer you will be posted across the country and transferred every three years. You have little say of your wish. Every three year urban posting followed by three years rural and vice versa. If you want your career to grow choose Canara bank followed by union bank . These banks have better growth potentials and better promotion scope
Can I fill out the NIOS April 2018 stream 1 form by an offline form because the online form is closed and I want to appear on this stream to save this question?
You can contact your respective regional centers for this. Though on the website there is no where mentioned that the application form will be available offline. However, it is best to ask them regarding this.
I have a PDF file 1/4 the size of a paper. How do I make 4 of these to fill up the entire paper in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC?
There is no immediate feature to do just that, but you can work around that if you have a PDF virtual printer installed.Make 4 copies of your original file, then combine them into a single file with 4 identical pages. Then use Acrobat's Print command, Multiple (or Booklet) options to print to that virtual printer.If you're on a Mac, you're better off doing the same with Preview as, unlike Acrobat, it does not mind you printing to PDF while using the standard Mac OS X “Pages per Sheet" print setting.
How many empty folders would it take to fill out a brand new 1 TB hard/solid disk drive?
This was also addressed in another forum: How much space do directories consume? and I don’t think I can add much to the explanation, so here it is:According to the Wikipedia article about NTFS, all permissions are stored in the Master File Table. It's space can be seen apparently through the Disk Defragmenter, as shown on here.The size a MFT record occupies from both a folder or a file, is described in here:File and folder records are 1 KB each and are stored in the MFT, the attributes of which are written to the allocated space in the MFT. Besides file attributes, each file record contains information about the position of the file record in the MFT.When a file’s attributes can fit within the MFT file record for that file, they are called resident attributes. Attributes such as file name and time stamp are always resident. When the amount of information for a file does not fit in its MFT file record, some file attributes become nonresident. Nonresident attributes are allocated one or more clusters of disk space. A portion of the nonresident attribute remains in the MFT and points to the external clusters. NTFS creates the Attribute List attribute to describe the location of all attribute records. The table NTFS File Attribute Types lists the file attributes currently defined by NTFS.So, in NTFS, folders occupy at least 1 KB of space, unless they have very long argument and permission lists, at that point, the MFT record occupies an additional cluster in the partition, the size of which depends on how it was formatted, although for more than 2GB Microsoft in that post recommends 4KB clusters.As to why this could be important, a few years back I was developing a data logging feature as part of an IoT embedded system. The architecture was set up so that each calendar day would have it’s own folder (much like many digital cameras do to store pictures).Memory space was limited, so we had to calculate precisely how all of the memory was allocated including the system memory for the directories. The goal was to match the memory space with the battery life so that it was still capturing data until it just ran out of power.Without including the “overhead” for the folders / directories, the calculations would have been off.However, with 1TB of memory to work with, the overhead just becomes a rounding error.FYI - we recently published a review / buyers guide featuring the Seagate as the top pick: Best 1TB Portable External Hard Drive for under $50
